The Cider Museum Hereford provides an interesting look at how cider has been made over the centuries, and has an extensive collection, which includes cider presses, bottles and mills, old photographs, advertising memorabilia, and a rare collection of 18th century English cider flutes made from lead crystal.
The museum is set in an old cider making factory, with a cooper's workshop, vat house, and original champagne cider cellars to explore, plus loads of cider making equipment. Kids can learn all about the apple, including the surprising number of varieties, through oral history recordings, vintage films and interactive computers. There is also the chance to dress up in a 19th century replica smock!
The museum also holds a cider making festival every October, which is well worth a visit as it includes demonstrations of traditional cider making, woodturning and blacksmith demonstrations, plus Coopering and Beekeeping exhibitions. You can also see some Morris Dancing, and there are a number of Children's activities to enjoy.
